My wife and I (senior citizens), my son and 9-year-old grandson have just spent four days in this aparthotel while on our first visit to family in Geneva. We would have no hesitation in returning, and will when the occasion arises. For a short stay visit, it is well located, steps from the Old Town, the rooms we had were... More

I stayed at Cite-Verdaine for 8 nights in January 2014 when I was in Geneva for work. It's in a great location at the edge of Old Town, within 1-2 blocks of major bus and tram routes and within 5 blocks of major stores, including a supermarket. I was on the top floor which was quiet but sacrificed some space... More

I am amazed to read so many complaints here...but I see they are all rather old. I moved here yesterday from another hotel which has paper-thin walls and lousy - but dear! - wifi. The young woman in the office here was totally charming and helpful, I have a very fine corner room, and the wifi is excellent. There is... More

I stayed here for 3 months this summer and early fall (June-Sept). The location is terrific- right at the edge of Old Town, 5 minute walk to the lake, 1 block to trams, tons of shopping. Yes, the rooms are small and hot (there were a couple of heat waves this summer in Geneva), but very clean (maid service twice... More

A comfortable enough place to stay in a great location, close to shops and the lake. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Kitchenette very basic, but great to have a sink, small fridge, microwave and some crockery and utensils. Not ideal for cooking much, other than microwave meals. No oven, just a cook top. A shame they didn't provide a... More

Stayed 1 1/2 months. Location is very well with also good access to public transport. Room with small kitchen (in a closet). Bed crashed several times and until fixed took more than 2 weeks. Staff very unfriendly and arrogant. Is only cleaned every second day. Room decoration very poor and old. If location is an issue, Even after having turned... More

When I was initially told I was being sent to Geneva for 3 weeks and booked into Cite Verdaine, I naturally did some research and was horrified by the write-ups. I decided to turn up and see for myself, with the intention of forcing my company to move me if it was as bad as had been stated. I found... More

I thought I should write a quick note to defend this hotel. Like many others I was placed here by my company as a temporary measure whilst I found permanent accomodation for the duration of my secondment to Geneva. All I can say is that the place is basic but comfortable and clean. The staff have been nothing short of... More

This has to be the worst place I have ever stayed. It must be a Swiss equivalent of Fawlty Towers. The rooms have old furniture which has no concept or colour co-ordination. Bed was lumpy and I could not sleep. The staff were rude, arrogant, totally disinterested in their guests and knew nothing about this small city. Constantly kept waiting... More

I complete agree with all of the other comments here - no one should ever stay at this hotel and it should go out of business. But the location is good so people keep coming. I stayed here for 3 weeks before I found a permanent apartment in Geneva and I have never encountered ruder staff in all my travels.... More
